2006 Aston Martin V12 Vanquish S finished in Meteorite Silver over a Bison Brown Bridge of Weir leather interior.
Introduced as Project Vantage, the V12 Vanquish concept first debuted at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit in 1998, designed by Ian Callum. Featuring a 5.9 liter V12 and a stunningly bold design, the Vanquish joined the DB7 Vantage in Aston martin’s 2001 lineup as Aston’s more aggressive technological tour de force.
With a composite aluminum and carbon fiber chassis and the snarling 460 hp V12 mated to an electrohydraulic 6-speed manual transmission (similar to the Ferrari F1 transmission and Lamborghini E Gear), the Vanquish proved to be true embodiment of Aston Martin’s renowned racing and grand touring heritage. Come 2004, the Vanquish evolved into the Vanquish S, receiving a large boost to horsepower to the tune of 60 hp, bringing total output to 520 hp. The S also benefited from the incorporation of the Sports Dynamic Package, with stiffer and sportier suspension, steering, and brakes. All of the stats belie the most important fact that the Vanquish was far and away a consummate grand tourer, earning praise from Car & Driver and Road & Track for its performance, posie, and design. But the most enduring aspect of the original Vanquish was its birthplace and heritage; the very last Aston Martin to be built in the historic Newport- Pagnell factory, wherein generations of Astons had been handbuilt for the past 49-odd years.
The very last Vanquish rolled off the production line in July of 2019, the month Aston Martin shuttered the Newport-Pagnell factory, with a total of 1503 Vanquish V12 and 1086 Vanquish S built by the end of its production run.
This 2006 Vanquish S needs nothing to be enjoyed by its next lucky owner.
